Publisher: Kadokin Condition: Fine impression, color and condition. Kato Kiyomasa (here appearing as the hero Masakiyo) led the campaign against Korea in the late 16th Century. He and his warriors hold heavy wooden shields and lead a charge against a barrage of foreign cannon fire. The scene is a thinly disguised depiction of an imagined battle with English warships at Kagoshima in 1862. In the background the twin towers of Saint Paul�s cathedral are shown, probably copied from a woodblock print of the city of London by Yoshitora which was published the previous year. Very rare and early design. Keyes 94; Illustrated Beauty and Violence, Prints by Yoshitoshi cat. No. 9 at p 99
